Phoenix 0.2 Release Set for Tomorrow

Monday September 30th, 2002

Blake Ross writes: "The Phoenix team is targeting a 0.2 milestone for tomorrow, October 1st. Please bang on the nightlies. 0.2 will feature a ton of new stuff, including a replacement for Mozilla's Form Manager, a redesigned Sidebar, a redesigned Download Manager (available as a Sidebar panel), improved toolbar customization (you can now add space and flexible space and a bunch of new buttons), an add-on manager, and a new search/find-in-page bar. Importing of bookmarks has been fixed, too."

Before filing bugs, take heed of Blake's advice: "If the issue seems obvious, we probably already know about it! For example, yes — we know that many of the new buttons are missing icons in some or all modes. We are desperately in need of an artist."

My only disappointment with all of the good work going into Phoenix is that Phoenix is not Mac compatible. The explanation given for ignoring the Mac platform is that Chimera is supposed to be the Mac replacement for Phoenix; I never really understood that argument but Chimera's native GUI did provide advantages. However, at this point, it does not seem like Chimera is keeping up with the Phoenix advancements. Is Chimera going to maintain a parallel features with Phoenix?
